antenna..... not even a peaked n tuned 300 dollar radio can hear much with a crap antenna.

i have both CB and Amateur radio in my truck and its all antenna as far as ive been told and from my own tests.

Yep its all in the antenna, well most of it at least. The more expenisve CBs normally have more features than the cheap ones. Like weather channels, speaker, PA output, stuff like that

Whoops....I neglected to see the part about the PA speakers....
